RESURRECTIONIST LOST WORK OF DR SPENCER BLACK HC
(W) E.B. Hudspeth
(A/CA) E.B. Hudspeth
Philadelphia. The late 1870s. Home to the famous anatomist and surgeon Dr. Spencer Black. At Philadelphia's esteemed Academy of Medicine, he develops an unconventional hypothesis: What if the world's most celebrated mythological beasts - mermaids, minotaurs, and satyrs - were in fact the evolutionary ancestors of humankind? The result is Black's magnum opus: The Codex Extinct Animalia
, a Gray's Anatom
y for mythological beasts, all rendered in meticulously detailed black-and-white anatomical illustrations. The Resurrectionist
tells his story.
